We were delighted and honoured to be asked to speak at the launch of the Stephen Tindale Climate Answers charity in London in June. Stephen was an important and highly valued friend and colleague who tragically took his own life in July 2017. A man of utter integrity and huge influence, Stephen was one of this country’s leading political thinkers on climate policy and low-carbon energy. The charity launch in London was a fair reflection of this with guests ranging from the media, industry, NGOs and political circles in addition to members of his family and friends. Our founder, Tarquin Henderson, shared the speaking honours with Sir Kier Starmer QC, one of Stephen’s many friends in the Labour Party and Suzanna Hinson from the charity.
The charity has been set up to support young people looking to forge a career in the low-carbon sector through the provision of research grants and work experience. Our company is looking forward to hosting our first research associate later this year. The charity website provides more detail on their work and of course Stephen’s legacy.
